rice has been caught up in this drama over the benghazi conflict and the deaths of americans in the assault on the u.s. consulate there. while susan rice was not responsible for security of the consulate, she did go on sunday shows and talk about the u.s. response there and she has been accused of deliberately mischaracterizing what happened. all sides -- or the white house has adamantly insisted and she has insisted that she in no way deliberately mischaracterized what happened. she was reading from unclassified talking points and nonetheless this has been caught up in a back and forth and, wolf, if i may, i'm going to read from part of her statement, her letter to the president and what she wrote in part, i am now convinced that the confirmation process will be lengthy, disruptive, and costly to you and to our most pressing national and international priorities. that tradeoff is simply not worth it to our country. the secretary of state may never be politicized. she says, i look forward to building on progress in your second term which seems to leave the door open to the po

of the state department has issued a report on the events that took place in benghazi, september 11 of this year. i think it is excellent. there are other committees in congress that have begun other investigations and i think that each of these will contribute to our understanding of what happened in benghazi and help to make sure that nothing like it happens again. under the senate rules, our committee has a special responsibility for oversight. as i said, for the interaction of different agencies of government, it is through that lens that after the tragic events of benghazi on such a member leventhal, the senator and i began our investigation. obviously we were time limited by the end of this year and end of this congress, the end of my service here. i am grateful not only to the senator for once again the extraordinary by partisanship we have had, but also our staffs who have worked together for well. they really work through the holiday when i must ask for my benghazi team to come down to our first floor office. the numbers were smaller than they had been earlier, but they had

when she made her comments about the attack on the u.s. outpost in benghazi. susan collins of maine is one of the senators who met with ambassador rice this week. senator collins is also among the republicans who say they need more information about benghazi before they can support ambassador rice for secretary of state. president obama has not yet nominated anybody. but this week he defended ambassador rice calling her extraordinary. the benghazi attack killed the u.s. ambassador to libya. chris stevens and three other americans on 9/11 of this year. five days after that. ambassador rice wept on the sunday talk shows and said u.s. officials believed the violence was a spontaneous reaction to protests over anti-muslim video. ambassador rice says she was using talking points directly from intelligence agencies that turned out to be wrong. intelligence officials now confirm they did indeed give her those talking points but senator collins tells fox news ambassador rice had access to a lot more information. catherine herridge in d.c. tonight. catherine? >> well, thank you, shepard. it'
time gold response to the attacks against the mission in benghazi. she is the first. who knows if she will be the last political victim of the fallout. >> is this a loss for america? the people generally think susan rice would have made a good secretary of state? >> people have very different opinions on her. the acrimony that accompanied the attacks is not something many people will welcome. this is not how politics should be conducted in washington. also, the president said the attacks against her had been unfair. she was also being pilloried in the american media by some of her colleagues for being undiplomatic. a lot of people thought she would not have made a good secretary of state. we will never find out. she has done the gracious thing and about out of the race before president obama had to make a decision about whether or not to appoint her. that is not to say she will not get any position in the next administration. she could get a position that does not require congressional confirmation >> is there anyone who he was not spying for? the former russian agent who was poisoned
poorly ahead of the benghazi terror attack on 9/11 the state department told us last week they were all either gone or demoted. this is direct quote from spokeswoman victoria knew land. secretary clinton accepted eric boss equal's decision to resign as effective up immediately. the other three individuals have been relieved of their current duties. all four individuals have been placed on administrative leave pending further action. the "new york post" is reporting those folks are still on the state department payroll. eric boswell who they said resigned did not resign and all four will be back to work before too long. >> they just shifted the deck chairs and they want to make the american people believe that the state department has held people accountable for their lack of security and sending help to four brave americans. this is incredibly inept of the state department to think that it continue to fool the american public. pathetic. >> reporter: we've asked the state department about this and they have chosen so far not to clarify or deny any of it. keep in mind that right now, they
and protection at that compound location in benghazi. mike rogers, the intelligence chairman on the house side, he said that what i find absolutely gross negligence -- gross negligence is that they did not take the right precautions. meaning that the state department or the administration did not give the ambassador that kind of protection that he apparently was looking for. reporter: yes, you have the whistleblowers to testify on capitol hill. we talked to them as well. it is a three act tragedy. you have the security that was not there before them. you have the response during seven-hour firefight. and many of the questions about how it was characterized afterwards. there are many questions about benghazi that have yet to be fully answered. these hearings and the continued focus on capitol hill, i think it is going to stay in the forefront, at least it will continue to cover it. if ambassador rice is nominated, i guarantee you that it will still get coverage elsewhere as well. jon: i'm sure you'll be talking about it tonight. bret baier will talk about it on a special report 6:00 o'clock eas
to close down the cia annex in benghazi? >> reporter: it's worth contrasting the status of the consulate with that. while the consulate site has never been secured, fox news is told that the cia annex in benghazi was shuttered by september 12th less than 24 hours after the attack. all classified information was removed or pwurpbld. burned. the decision to close down the annex same at 5:15 local time when the annex took fire from two mortars. the process began the night before after the consulate was attacked in the evening hours. the initial stages of the agency's proscribed evacuation kicked in as a cautionary step. once it was clear they could not sustain their position that was wrapped up and they were able to get everything out, classified information, either moved or destroyed by about 7:00am local time. so the contrast is that within hours the cia was able to close down their operation, and that consulate has never been secured by any u.s. personnel, jon. jon: and it's almost three months later and still all of these questions. >> reporter: that's correct, uh-huh. jon: thank you, c
report found that security in the post benghazi was woefully inadequate leading up to the attack on the u.s. consulate that killed chris stevens. he's got a whole lot of international issues to deal with, but he's also going to be leading a department that, including its foreign staff, has 75,000 people. >> all right. elise labott, jessica yellin, wolf blitze thank you very much, all of you guys. we'll take a quick break and we'll be following this. arrhea,? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues with three strains of good bacteria. approved!

watched al qaeda elements able to destroy our or damage severely our consulate in benghazi and kill four brave americans. the message has to be sent that the united states is in engaged and that the united states is ready to be involved and the united states is ready to do whatever is necessary to prevent an act that could endanger or take the lives of literally thousands and thousands of innocent people. >> thanks, john. we have reached a grave moment in the war that's raging in syria now for 20 months. and it's grave for the obvious fact that we believe that the assad government has weapononized chemical and biological agents and put them in a position where they can be used fairly rapidly. as you look back over the 20 months of this conflict, this follows a series of events, one leading to the other which people said could not happen. this began, remember, with peaceful demonstrations. and when assad was unable to control them or suppress, he began to fire on his own people and they began to defend themselves in a very unfair fight which everyone thought we should take sides on the si
intelligence capabilities. we sometimes screw that up as the case of benghazi demonstrates the biggest policy question which i hope we debate is how we become more nimble and understand the political trends. thanks.

[laughter] the exception of course is reuel. the austrian physicist used to put down his worst students by saying you're not even wrong. [laughter] that's why i am inclined to take the comments. you know, if i say to my son what is five plus seven and he says 11, that's wrong. if he says banana then he's not even wrong. what you have heard from reuel especially is a banana. what would he has just essentially done in a very slippery and disingenuous way is to say that the choice that we face is between secular dictatorship in the strike or various others and democracy we have to accept this democracy because even if it is an islamist democracy if
